documents recovered from the benghazi compound by the foreign policy magazine show that in the early morning hours of september 11, the consulate staff believed they were under surveillance. this person was photographing the inside of the u.s. special mission. and furthermore, this person was part of the police unit sent to protect the mission. this is consistent with online post from sean smith, avid gamer before it was overrun with terrorists. smith was killed. "assuming we don't die tonight we saw one of the police guarding the come pound taking pictures." the classified cable sent to hillary clinton noted by headquarters that the situation on the ground was so dire in the long-term the consulate would take the extreme step of moving in with the cia at the annex which also came under attack on 9/11. >> the conditions on the ground were such that literally the back were up against the wall. they had no options left. >> reservations about the libyan security, escalates violence, rise of demolition central to the classified table sent in mid-august, forshadows the commando style attack. >> i
, on this issue generally in foreign policy, how is that playing out in pennsylvania? guest: there is no doubt that the president had a pretty substantial lead on foreign policy in the polls that have been done. that lead has certainly narrowed to four, five, six points in the polls i looked at just last week. the been gauzy issue has certainly played a pretty significant role in that decline. on been gauzy, it's hard to say exactly how that would play a politically. i do think the administration has a lot to answer for objectively for how they handled it and what the president and vice-president new or did not know when any time and how they responded to the request for security. we do not have time to get in the details of that. typically that would not be decisive. we will not go to the moral question that the caller raised, but in political terms, it's not likely to be decisive, but it's certainly not helpful to the president. it is still in the polls that i have done and others have done largely about the economy. host: this was just a few days ago from politicio. republicans are intrigue
administration to focus its foreign policy efforts on asia. former ambassador to iraq, chris hill said political gridlock is hurting u.s. foreign policy object is an asian policy is a good place to rebuild bipartisanship. the discussion is just under two hours. >> thank you all for being here this afternoon and welcome to gaston on georgetown company country university. we've kind for a special conversation. a conversation between top diplomats past and present, each of whom has played a significant role over the past two decades with representatives from the administration of george h.w. bush to the current administration of barack obama, our guest speakers today offered their expertise and experience as they look back on their years of service and look forward to the future of u.s.-asia relations. we offer my gratitude to georgetown's asian studies program, our school foreign service and the korea economic institute who have partnered to bring together some of our country's most respected minds on foreign policy and asia. we are deeply grateful to dr. dr. victor cha and director of asian studi
it clear that they also have a very different view on foreign policy. when we entered the war in iraq, they said we should have kept 30,000 troops there. they refuse to commit to an end date on the war in afghanistan, and they openly opposed the signing of an arms control treaty with russia that every single former republican secretary of state, secretary of defense, and national security adviser urged be ratified. >> there is vice president joe biden in lynchburg, virginia. let's go ahead and take you to governor mitt romney. he is in kissimmee, florida, here. just taken the stage there. behind him marco rubio. also connie mack. connie mack represents the fourth district here in florida. >> in english and spanish, and thank you for being here. what a welcome! this is fabulous, thank you. [ cheering ] now let me underline something that connie mack just said. he reminded you that early voting began today. that means that today you can go vote. and it helps for you to vote now because the earlier you vote, the more help you can give us getting other people to the polls? because we're g
any basis and fact in terms of foreign policy. >> what do you make of governor romney today picking up on a line that he basically debuted, if you will, right before the storm and the attention went to that crisis, that he is the candidate of change in this race? >> well, i think that that is a very shallow argument, but the last three days, you're going to see enormous amount of messaging. president obama is the candidate of change. he was four years ago. he is now, changing the policies of the past. he's done that in foreign policy. he's doing this with the economy, with his agenda of creating jobs and more teachers and engineering jobs and the middle class out. he's the candidate of change. governor romney is not. but, look, this is a very close race. this is going to go down to the wire. but i feel confident. i see the battleground states moving our way. but i think it's going to be a long night, tamron, a long night on tuesday. >> governor, it's a great pleasure having you on. i know we will see you that night on some of our coverage, i'm sure. thank you, sir. >>> and we are follo
, and pain. >> chris: from a final debate on foreign policy to round the clock campaigning romney and obama are locked in a furious race to the finish. here is what it was like on the trail. >> the nature of our military has changed. we had these things called aircraft carriers where planes land on them. >> mr. president, america has not dictated to other nations. we have freed other nations from dictators. >> we witnessed a president who really has no record to run on. >> half the time i didn't know whether governor romney was there to debate barack obama or endorse barack obama. >> high, guys, how are you doing? >> last night and throughout this campaign i laid out a plan for jobs. and middle class security. >> his idea of growing the economy is raising taxes. does any one think raising taxes creates more jobs? >> i have a deal for the president. >> what is the thing with trump and you? it is like me and letterman. what has he got against you here? i don't get it. >> you know, this all dates back to when we were growing up together in kenya. >> yeah. >> and -- >> we are pulling an all nig
for the rich. you're doing a more bellicose foreign policy in the middle east. that's exactly what george w. bush did. everything is the same. but even more right wing, in fact if i was obama campaign, i would run an ad like this. >> is mitt romney a newser? as governor of massachusetts the state was 47th in job creation. there are only 50 states. >> i worked at one company bain for 25 years. >> cenk: he drove companies into bankruptcy. >> harvest them at a significant profit. >> cenk: thousands lost jobs. it is not that mitt romney doesn't care about winning. it is that he isn't on your team. >> romney: corporations are people, my friend. >> cenk: like this guy. what he really cares about are his real friends. under bush, stock prices of favored companies went up while jobs for us went down. mitt romney, what is the difference between you and george w. bush? >> if you raise taxes on the so-called rich, you're really raising taxes on the job create os. >> stop this war on job creators. >> they're the same
, that was the -- >> i am being serious, jared. >> yes -- if you look at the foreign policy debate, that was another example to me, again, of mitt romney saying, i can't figure out what the median voter who's going to ultimately decide this thing wants me to say, so i'm going to be all over the map, i'm just going to agree with the president, whatever. same thing on fema. it was something to privatize, to kick to the states. you hit a natural disaster, and there's an obvious role that we just discussed, an efficient economic role for a centralized government, a role by the federal government and he's speechless, doesn't know what to say. >> indeed. thank you, jonathan and jared, please stay with us. but i would like to bring in mike viqueira, who's reporting for us from the white house. we're watching pictures of president obama accompanied by are chris christie, both of whom are about to make a public statement. and mike, the president not only visiting the region this morning, he's also telephoned hospitals in new york, he visited the red cross, he visited fema as well, right? >> reporter: that's
, in the final week of this campaign, not only been in a day abandoning their position on foreign policy, trying to wiggle out of their position on women. now they are running away from the bet -- very fundamental ten et upon which this new republican tea party is based. what do they say? i mean this sincerely. it is based on two things -- one, the tax structure continuing to give massive tax cuts to the very wealthy. the five dar trillion tax plan that governor romney ran on a right here in the primaries in florida, with all those republicans, that $5 trillion plan, $1.6 trillion of which goes to making a minimum of $1 million. all this sudden it is gone. as my fourth granddaughter with said, did caspar the friendly ghost steal it? where did it go? it was a center element of the organizing principle, but because outside groups pointed out that the plan would raise middle-class taxes by $2,000 a year, all of a sudden it has vanished. all of a sudden, romney says, do not worry, it will not cost anything. we will eliminate the polls for the wealthy. ladies and gentlemen, for people making over $1
. >> mayor, i want to turn to foreign policy really quickly. president obama did an interview with joe and mika that's going to run tomorrow morning in its entirety on "morning joe." this is what he said about the benghazi attacks. take a listen. >> my attitude on this is if we find out that there was a big breakdown and somebody didn't do their job, they'll be held accountable. ultimately as commander in chief i'm responsible. i don't shy away from that responsibility. my number one responsibility is to go after the folks that did this and make sure we get them. i have a pretty good track record in doing that. >> how much has the benghazi attack become a political liability for the president as we head into election day, mayor? >> what you just heard there was a rational commander in chief doing what needs to be done to lead a country. that's what he's been doing for four years. that's how he focused on bin laden and focused on how we need to do positive things around the globe. i'm a mayor, too. i know the moment that something happens, a crime for instance even in my own town, you d
on the topic of foreign policy. most of his ideas he was a me, too. host: let's hear from our republican voters in new hampshire. caller: it is amazing that are all on the puck for president obama. you want to watch a balanced news station, go to fox news. that is the truth, it really is. president george bush would have been crucified if this went down in libya. for american soldiers, people that were killed. they were just sitting around. same situation. mitt romney does have a plan. he is a businessman. obama has never been run a lemonade stand. let's be honest. guest: with respect to benghazi the president is insisting on getting to the bottom. he has also said we will find those responsible and nature -- make sure they are held responsible. that is what we expect from are responsible president. with respect to the other comments, obviously with respect to fox news, i do not watch fox news, so i cannot really comment on fox other than to say it might be a good idea if our friends from kingston tried watching some other shows once in awhile to see what other folks are saying and not rely upo
or steel aspects from it -- emulate their engagement policy or steal aspects from a? >> there is not a perfect model. look at some of the work that is happening in india, for example, to try to attract foreign investment and entrepreneurs. i'm not sure -- it is still very early in terms of the results of their. for the last three decades, the u.s. has had, historically, a very healthy immigration policy, but in the last decade or so we have kind of gone the other way. when you think about it, the number of immigrants that have come in and built amazing companies and created jobs in the hundreds of thousands, we cannot be looking at other markets because there is not a perfect model, but we need to look back of the 1970's in the u.s. as an historical model. we have a lot of immigration. a lot of people came in with science, technology, engineering, mathematics backgrounds. if you look at silicon valley, you see the results. >> i spent seven years of my life painfully on the commission of immigration reform which was chaired by barbara jordan and 1990's. i think the wa
